A big congrats to Steven I. Weiss and his team over at CampusJ. They broke the story about the NY Times making a deal with Columbia University to be the first to get a copy of the University's report on students' claims of anti-Israel bias by professors. In exchange for the exclusive, the Times had to agree to (in their own words) "not seek reaction from other interested parties". In other words, print a completely one-sided story, without even giving the other side any opportunity to comment. Which the Times proceeded to do.

In any event, CampusJ managed to wring a correction that, IMO, is as close as were gonna get to an apology from the Times. Details here.
